Joy Ratima baby wipe hack goes viral

A Melbourne mum is getting attention from all over the world after creating her own natural baby wipes how-to, which has since gone viral.

Since Joy Ratima posted the video tutorial online it has had over 2million views. Which isn’t really surprising seeing as it’s total genius!

It all started when Joy became concerned about the chemicals in a lot of baby products, so decided to come up with her own, which she shared on her personal Facebook page.

She also has her own mummy blog page, Mama Joy at Home, filled with other life hacks like homemade makeup remover wipes, detangling hair spray and weekly meal plans.

But it's definitely the baby wipes that have garnered the most interest.

“I make my own baby wipes – did you know that they have a huge list of chemicals in them (and we use them to clean our precious baby bums),” she wrote in a Facebook post.

“I have had heaps of people ask me to show them how to make them the way I do and although I felt like an egg filming this (although my big boy thought I was good, bless his heart) and I didn't really want to put it up here I thought I would so hopefully others can do the same.

“Takes less than 5 mins to do and is cheaper than buying wipes too.”

To DIY you’ll need:

  • Viva paper towels
  • Coconut oil
  • Natural body wash
  • x basic Decor Telfresh containers
  • A large, sharp knife
  • 1x cup of boiling water
